We previously reviewed the inov-8 MISTLITE PANT 130. Now we check out the inov-8 MISTLITE SHELL 210. This lightweight running jacket is fantastic for road running, trail running and other outdoor sports. The weather can often act unfavourably so it is best you go prepared.
The inov-8 MISTLITE SHELL 210 can best be described as a lightweight jacket. This water-tight and highly wind-resistant jacket will keep you safe from the elements. When you encounter water, it quickly collects beads, which soon run off.
This jacket is very functional – one of its many top-drawer qualities is its large waist pocket. The jacket packs into its own pocket and can be carried as a waistpack – thanks to a buckle and strap that fastens comfortably around your waist. The generous pocket space can accommodate various items such as a compass, mobile phone, food and even the MISTLITE pants. In addition there are also hip pockets.
Sticking to the minimalist tradition, it is very lightweight, weighing only 210 g. When folded it can actually fit into your back pocket. The jacket is breathable and a full-length zipper makes provision for airflow.
The inclusion of a roll-away hood is a welcomed feature in the event of rain. The jacket also has reflective print and trim, which is a great safety measure in terms of visibility. The inov-8 MISTLITE SHELL 210 can be purchased online here.
